2018 BCDRN Trainee Travel Awardees

The BC Diabetes Research Network (BCDRN) would like to congratulate the trainees that are recipients of the inaugural 2018 BCDRN Trainee Travel Awards. The trainees were invited to present their research at national or international meetings related to their field of diabetes research. Our trainees presented their research in Canadian cities including Calgary, Ottawa and Halifax and international meetings in San Diego California and Berlin Germany. The BCDRN is delighted to be able to offer support for these trainees to gain experience presenting at these scientific knowledge exchange meetings. The BCDRN was able to support all the applications it received in 2018.
